Stop Trading Hours for Dollars

Filipinos coming back from the states (or from other countries outside of the Philippines) often carries with them a big box from which many Filipinos call the Balikbayan box.A Balikbayan box is just an ordinary box containing a number of things like canned goods, clothing, perfumes, soaps, shampoos, shoes, toys, household items, or any kind of things that could be used by their families, relatives, and friends.

Though often shipped by freight forwarders specializing in balikbayan boxes by sea, such boxes can be brought by Filipinos returning to the Philippines by air. A Balikbayan box intended for air travel is designed to conform to airline luggage restrictions and many Filipino stores carry them. Some boxes come with a cloth cover and side handles. Others are tightly secured with tape or rope, and thus not confused with an ordinary moving box more lightly wrapped.

Some courier companies in the Philippines was founded for the purpose of assisting Filipinos in delivering their balikbayan boxes back to their families and loved ones in the Philippines. One of those of those courier companies is LBC. Started as a brokerage and air cargo agent in the 1950's, LBC or Luzon Brokerage Corporation grew into a fully operational cargo forwarding service provider that first introduced the 24-hour air cargo delivery service. Specializing in delivery and courier services, LBC's one true service is offering the fastest and most reliable Balikbayan boxdelivery services for Filipinos working abroad.

Because of their trusted services built upon years of successful courier service, LBC soon became a respected leader offering fast and reliable Express Courier and Money Remittance service throughout the Philippines. Today, LBC offers the widest coverage and network with over 600 strategically located branches nationwide.

Being in the forefront of innovation, LBC supported the growing needs of migrant Filipinos and their families by offering new services and establishing new businesses. In setting up LBC Development Bank in 1995, LBC offered banking products that helped Filipinos manage their financial resources and options. Online shopping and delivery to the Philippines were made available through expressregalo.com.ph , photo printing & delivery nationwide through Digiprint as well as fresh flowers delivery anywhere in the Philippines through Flowers Express. LBC carries on advancing and fulfilling its mission to reach out to the global Filipino community that will ultimately make the world a smaller place.
